About the Author
Praise For Codex…
PRAISE FOR CODEX
"A genuine treat, with its sneaky plot and richly textured storytelling. Moves so fast that readers won't realize how smart it is." -SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
"Fascinating, compelling, and deliciously disturbing." -THE BOSTON GLOBE
"Takes its place on the shelf of self-referential, bibliophilic page-turners like The Name of the Rose, Possession and A Case of Curiosities, and it's as entertaining as any of them."
-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"An exhilarating literary tour de force … mesmerizing from start to finish. A fabulous double-helix of a novel."
"Alluring and meticulous. Replete with a sexy duchess, a jaded academic ... and a shadowy programmer."
"Plays around with narrative in classic postmodern fashion."
"A genuine treat with its sneaky plot and richly-textured storytelling. Moves so fast you won''t realize how smart it is."
"Blisteringly hot .... Put Codex on your list."
"Takes its place on the shelf of bibliophilic page-turners like Name of the Rose and Possession. Such a good story."
"Transcends the current vogue for the archaic--linking the 14th and 21st centuries by considering the powers of parchment and PlayStation."
